    I wanted to get a discussion going on the Pros and Cons of Business Partners and Co-Founders.

    I have been involved in many businesses with partners, and some without. These are just a few off of the top of my head. I'm curious what you guys can come up with.

    Pros:
    • Motivation, inspiration and someone to help keep you "driven"
    • Split costs
    • Have different areas of expertise (teamwork)
    • Divide responsibilities
    • Less time commitment, depending on responsibilties

    Cons:
    • It doesn't go as planned and they don't put in the time, or money that you do
    • It can cost you 50%
    • Power trips/power struggle
    • They make a big mistake that costs you
    • You don't see eye to eye on all issues

    What are some other Pros and Cons?

    Personally I think it depends on the business and of course the people who are to become involved.

    A business partner can be just the thing a business needs as they'll bring fresh ideas and a new way of thinking to the table. At the same time though, the existing owner of the business is going to have to be open to these new ideas.
